After spending a couple of days on Sanibel Island, you learn quickly about the ugliness man creates by messing with our ecosystem. In the early days canals were dug to dry up the land south of Lake Okeechobee so farmers could take advantage of the rich soil. Today the nutrients from the farming runs off into the lake. The lake then flows into the Caloosahatchee River and the mouth empties near Sanibel, and its ugly brown mess flows into the Gulf of Mexico. What was poured into it comes out at the mouth. If clean water was all that was poured into Lake Okeechobee, then the water running out the mouth would also be clean. Isn’t that true for people too? Whatever you are filling your mind with, will eventually show in your actions and come out of your mouth. If you concentrate your efforts on filling up on the Word of God, your language will reflect your knowledge.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer. Psalms 19:14
